Fav20 user accounts!

I know a lot of you are waiting for the account feature, where you can have your favorite websites anywhere.

I have made a test account:
Link: http://www.fav20.com/demodemo
Password: demo

Note that anyone can add/delete anything they want there to test. Feedback here (comment) is appreciated.
I will work this days on the code, so if problems while you test come back in few minutes and test again.

Bonus features that accounts will have in the near future:

  • Copy local saved websites to the account (websites will be saved on server);
  • Unlimited number of websites (currently cookies are limited to 4k size ~ 40 websites).
  • Clear interface (remove unnecessary explaining text and icons)

Other futures that will come:

  • Categories/tabs (organize your websites in tabs)
  • Open all marked websites (mark some websites that you want to open in one click)
  • Some kind of socializing/interaction between users (still thinking of it)

Tweaks on Fav20

I just added some small tweaks to fav20 that will make user experience better.

  • Google search box – to fast search on Google, because some people prefer to use Google as homepage. It is time to have Google and all your other favorite websites on one homepage: fav20
  • Add another website – will give a better understanding to user that he can add other websites

Fav 2.0 worldwide

Fav 2.0 has been visited by people worldwide. Considering that promoting has been done almost only viral, webmaster that saw the application started writing about it on blogs or sites, here are some statistics.

  • 40% Romania
  • 15% Italy
  • 14% Spain
  • 4-7% United States, China, Canada, Germany, Argentina, United Kindgdom and Mexico

Fav20 has only 1 page and SEO was pretty useless, but still about 20-30 people / day are searching for fav20 on search engines.

Here is where people wrote about www.fav20.com:

I invite anybody who uses and likes fav20, to spread the word.

Keep only interested visitors

I am looking at Google Anaylitics every day ( I’m obsesed 🙂 ), trying to figure what should I do next to make the website more appealing and keep more visitors on site.

On fav20.com I have about 60 new vistors every day, but still constant of 200 visitors. So I tried to make a better user experience on the site, trying to keep as many as possible from those new visitors.

After talking to Alex Negru, he had a very good point: Keep only the visitors interested in your service, make their experience better. 

I started already getting good feedback from current users of fav20 and wroted Future features of fav20, so I hope I am on the right track.
